FARMINGTON — A Wilton man accused of bludgeoning his grandmother to death with a hammer will remain in jail without bail following an initial court appearance Monday.

Dana “Mikey” Craney, 22, had lived with his grandmother, Joanne Goudreau, in a mobile home at 1130 Weld Road. He was charged with murder on Sunday by Maine State Police after his grandmother’s body was found by the trailer under plywood.

Police had gone to the home Saturday afternoon because relatives asked them to check on Goudreau’s well-being.

In a brief initial court appearance Monday, Craney, represented by attorney Walter Hanstein, was ordered to remain in jail pending a bail hearing.
